Wisconsin star-gazers will be outside early Friday morning searching the skies for a partial lunar eclipse. It will begin at 1:20 a-m and peak moon coverage will be visible at 3:03 a-m. A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth’s shadow blocks the sun’s light on the moon. Astronomers say the event will be more than 99-percent visible in the state and sky conditions are going to be clear for the duration. This will be the longest partial lunar eclipse in more than 580 years. The eclipse will end at 4:00 a-m.
